Canadian hunter, shooter, rifle collector.
Have shot (with a variety of calibers) many of the three species of Canadian deer: Whitetail, Mule and Blacktail. Also numerous Moose, Bear, Coyotes, and etc. I do my own butchering.
My collection of fullstock ("Mannlicher-style") rifles includes Mannlicher-Schoenauer, Steyr-Mannlicher, Sako, Oberndorf Mauser, Husqvarna, Brno, Krico, etc.
My mother's family came from near Nottingham, my father's from Austria-Hungary. An English great-grandfather taught agricultural science at Cambridge. An Austrian great-grandfather was a riflesmith in Steyr, Austria.
I would like to hunt Roe Deer.
I do not own a shotgun or a handgun, but have in the past.
I ride a Triumph.
Attached are a few pictures of my favorite rifle, a Sako M-85 6.5 x55 "Bavarian" Stutzen with semi-custom stock.
